Dana White Talks Possibility Of Royce Gracie Fighting At UFC: Rio

UFC President Dana White held a Q&A this past weekend during the UFC: Fight For Troops weigh in and talked about the odds of seeing Royce Gracie returning to the Octagon one more time for the UFC's summer event in Rio:

“We're actually doing a fight in Brazil on Aug. 29,” White said. “It's our first time ever going to Rio de Janeiro. We went down there to do a big press conference. [Gracie] came with us and was part of the press conference. He's still very close to the UFC, and we talk to him all the time. He still wants to fight one more time. “He's retired right now,” White said. “He's a good guy, though. We look at him as the father of this whole thing. We've got nothing but respect for him, and he's still very much involved with us.”
